I think a family caregiver starts a day like no other. You’re not just starting your day, you’re also starting the day of your caree (or carees) and perhaps your kids.
So, I’d love to know more about how your day starts–your tasks, your priorities, your time constraints, your pressure, your favorite breakfast. And, for fun, I’d love to know what’s it like in ten words. (I’m giving you four bonus words for this one. And, remember, you can hyphenate to create one word.) You can create as many ten-word stories to describe the start of your day as you’d like.
It could be:
The morning begins as it ends: Clean, loud, rush, scramble.
Change sheets, change caree, change me, hand-off to the aide.
Please share your ten-word stories about how your day starts in our comments section, below. I’ll choose a random winner to receive audio copies of Take Comfort and Take Comfort, Too. With these MP3s, you can bring my words of comfort with you wherever you need them–the car, the doctor’s house, your house.
Looking forward to reading your stories.
